Ceramics from yesteryear
The Virgen de Guadalupe, milagros, sacred hearts and images are all artistic motifs used in Mexican folk art in every state in Mexico.
The Christmas decorations of Mexico vary by region but are always colorful and festive whether made of tin, paper, wood, textiles or clay.
"Milagro"means "miracle" in Spanish. Milagros are religious charms that are prevalent throughout Mexico and are used to request or thank God for a miracle.
Consider giving a gift of high quality, Mexican handmade goods! Every piece is authentic and personally selected on our buying trips to Mexico.
Lots of unique, colorful paper products and decorations are made by Mexican artisans with skill and creativity.
Look here for placemats, napkins, table runners, tablecloths, huipiles and other textiles handmade in Mexico!
These are beautiful, cut and hammered tin lumenaria handmade in Oaxaca. All are cut in the same lovely and complex design. The openings can be widened to allow more light to show through. We recommend using the small LED votive candles, but they look absolutely great with real candles inside them, too. This group has a corral to place a votive candle on the inside of the cylinder. If you are concerned about them getting rusty, we recommend spraying/painting them with varnish.
